"INFT 110 opened my eyes to functions of the computer that I would not have learned on my own. It also opened several doors for me. By embracing the class and working hard, I was prepared for the next level computer class and I was actually able to become the tutor for INFT 110. Taking INFT 110 also prepared me for the tasks that I have to complete in my Biology classes."

-  Jackie Caulfield
